5/5 Excellent

  • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities

Clean hotel. Friendly English-speaking staff. Located in Wanhua (Ximending). Nice craft beer place called the Driftwood attached to the hotel. WiFi is a bit weak, but I hope you’re not going to Wanhua (Ximending) to be stuck in your hotel room on your phone or laptop.

  • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities

The staff are pleasant and helpful, place is generally clean. Location is ok, with a few Family Mart and 7-11 nearby. One more good thing is that there’s quite a number of universal socket all around the room. However the rooms are not sound proof AT ALL. You hear a door bell and you won’t know if it’s your room or next door. If the guest next door speaks loudly, you can hear everything clearly. You will be just hearing all sorts of noises all day all night. The bed is not comfortable at all. And this is subjective - the pillow is too soft. Overall, I would not recommend this hotel and I won’t be choosing this property again.

  • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities

The staff are polite and attentive. The room is relatively spacious, but I don’t like there is a piece of glass above the water tap as the head is easy to clash on the glass when washing face or brushing teeth. The location is close to xiemending and MRT station, and many restaurants nearby.
